Visit the Fondation Beyeler from your home. Apart from our existing programmes such as the Artist Talks or our thematic media series on social media, we have developed new and specific formats for you and your family.
Guided Sessions mit Diego Hangartner

"Edward Hopper – voll Nussig!"
"Ein Museumsbesuch der anderen Art"
With Mike Müller und Patrick Frey
Empty museums exert a deep fascination. We invited Swiss actors, authors and comedians Mike Müller and Patrick Frey to perform alone in the museum, develop ideas, and apply their wit and humour to the artworks - of course with the necessary distance. The ten part series is released each Monday and Friday on our website and on facebook. [in German]
We bring our art mediation program straight to your living room - with workshop instructions, guided tours, quizes and templates from our current exhibition.
Beyeler "Still Life"
We invite you to join us in looking carefully and heeding nature’s small sensations. With our «Beyeler Slowdown», we turn our gaze onto iconic elements of the Fondation Beyeler’s grounds, such as the water lily pond or the large Calder sculpture, capturing them at a time of stillness. Pause for a moment of contemplation and follow the play of the wind setting Calder’s sculpture in motion or the dance of Philippe Parreno’s water lilies.
Art, dance, music, performance, Artist Talks, tours guided by curators, work analyses and much more.
Discover or rediscover special moments at the Fondation Beyeler, or view recent contents such as an interview with artist Mark Bradford.
Performance and Readings
The supporting program organized by the Fondation Beyeler to accompany the exhibitions does more than create connections to literature, music, and architecture. Renowned performers and contemporary dance ensembles are also frequently invited as a part of the program. They take up the artistic idiom of the exhibited works and interpret it as movement in space, creating impressive and intimate live experiences in the museum.
Artist Talks is a program organized by the Fondation Beyeler and UBS in which internationally renowned contemporary artists speak about their work. The talks have an open, dynamic format and range from traditional artist’s talks to moderated conversations between artists and prominent figures from the art world. The Artist Talks are held at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen/Basel and at other art institutions in Europe, Asia, Latin America and the USA.
